Frequently Asked Questions About Consulting & Employment Agreement
Do I need a different Consulting contract template for employees in a different geographic location?
Not really. You can edit the location in your employee contract template and send it to your employee. You’re advised to consult with your legal advisor to make sure the contract complies with local law.
How is an employment contract template different from a normal employment contract?
A new salary employee contract template that is being used as a result of the employee being promoted should still have all of the information that is found in a regular employer/employee contract template (salary details, legal jurisdiction, signatures, etc.).
Can these templates be used for freelancers?
Freelancers are not your employees, so you are not supposed to sign an employment agreement with them unless you intend to hire them full-time.
